Glamperidoo

Glamping

Glamping in a set like this one, would be the ideal. Funny though the whole idea of it makes me feel I am suddenly going to join a cult – but in reverse – where I get to keep all my worldly goods, and probably acquire many more.

This amazing boho set is by Cheeky Pea, and has all the bits and pieces you will need to make an impact at any Glamping site. If this was made in miniature, I could see this years Summer Camps for the little ones taking a very fashionable turn.

The lovely braided parts of my hairstyle making it all come along as very earthy fashionista. I had to wear this hair not only for its lovely look, but also because it came forward covering the breasts. I fell in love with this shirt the other day, and then realised that the mesh was created to have stand out nipples. Many creators in SL will tell you that this does not make for a happy Sasy. One creator used to have a Sasy version of her clothing for modesty sake, because she used to do nipple shading on her clothing but remove it for a Sasy version. I just do not tend to think that they can fight so hard to stand at attention through most fabric, and women are not walking around on high beam all the time. So while this shirt is awesome, I have to cover that look up. Some fabrics it is believable with, but denim is not one of them.

Teaming it up with these great shorts that Addams has at this round of Collabor88, you still have a few days left of this round, so make sure you snatch up all the goodies you didn’t already. the belt has colour change options as well as studs for the denim on the shorts themselves, nice to be able to choose on or off for that look. These fantastic shoes are from Empire, and seriously what is not to love with them. These come in the Physique body fit, as well as lots of other sizes, so make sure you run and find those, they are stunners.

The watch bracelet I have on is from Minimal, and comes in different metal options, I love the mix of looks of bracelet, with the lovely large watch face finish. You can even click on it and set it to your own timezone, how cool is that, it is at this round of TMD, which Whimsy and I are on our way to now, we may see you there.

So excited that there are now two more feet styles by Slink on the grid. This is just in time for the change of seasons, meaning we are going to have a stunning array of fun styles to look forward to in the coming months. Kitten height is between Flat and Mid, which is so girly, I can see this being my bare-feet option loads.

Then you have Pointe, again AWESOME and can see some serious fetish shoes being made for these, on top of all the girly ballet styles….Margot the original ballet slippers that Slink had in just a flat option got also updated to accommodate the whole deluxe option, so you get 5 heights, and they did not forget about those that only have a few sets, they included a hud that changes the height of just the shoe, so if you only own mid, or only own high, or only own flat, or only purchase the new ones, you are covered. If you already owned the Margot slippers, you can update them FREE. The Deluxe hud also controls the Margot slippers if worn to save you using both huds, how neat is that. They put so much work into this new system, cannot wait to see other shoe creators take on the concept of shoes changing for different heights.

Not only is there two new styles, but an incredible new package called the Deluxe pack. This is a completely remade system of the five heights combined into one attachment. It is not an update, which makes sense, as everything has been completely rebuilt…it is not just five feet sets in a folder you swap. What is great though, is if like me you would have run over and bought both of the new feet, the kitten and the pointe, you can actually get the whole Deluxe set for the same price (1350L) until the 16th of April, that is a huge saving, and so cool. If you don’t want the new feet, or you only want the new feet, you have those options as the singles anyway. All items were updated to the new look huds though as well as the seamless Phys size, so updating the feet, bodies and hands is all needed, you can do that with Redelivery.

With a new seamless physique option button and the standard sizing. The new hud is laid out really well with the tabs for the feet heights on one side when the feet options are selected. You can also select different heights for each foot separately, which is something I spoke about doing with your different feet in a blog post in the past. Giving you a more natural look. I love this idea. It also means that going to any event or shopping in any shoe store is now as simple as a click to change heights if trying on a variety of shoes…I can see my shoe collection ballooning from this.

You can see more about the updates on the Slink blog HERE  I also took a pic of my feet on kitten and high to give you an idea of how fun photos will be in the future.

Today I am wearing an adorable floral dress by Amiable, that is at this round of Collabor88, I am wearing the wrong style hair to show you what I want to mention, but the neckline of this dress is one I am surprised more creators do not attempt. It takes a lot of the rigging and clipping issues out of the mesh, because it is like an extended boatneck style, very cool and very girly. I was feeling my 80’s with this insane plastic bag I am wearing that is also from C88. I had this bag in pink when I was younger, and as fun as the jellyness of it was, it was a pain in the rear, it would get hooked on everything, stuff fell out of it all the time, and it was actually created as a flat piece that you folded and pronged together on the joins, so if you did walk past something and then get hooked you could end up having an exploding bag…it only happened to me twice OKAY!

Such pretty and feminine items at this round of Collabor88. This dress is a stunner by Pixicat, and worn with the boudoir slippers by The Secret Store it is the perfect date look. Slippers such as these have always been a popular item in Second Life, I remember before mesh we used to endure lots of stacked alpha parts to make the fluff section, but it was still such a must have look, so these are just the icing on the top of a very delightful cake.

I am wearing the new release Julia skin by Adam n Eve that is at this years Skin Fair, and has all sorts of options, and appliers available for bodies, and other needs. It has different brow options, and I just love its overall look. Make sure you try the demos, and check out the other skins at Adam n Eve at Skin Fair…they also have system skins releases, as I know some people were asking after those.

Come Hither – VR Foundry

Come Hither - Doorway Set

Pose Fair and Skin Fair both just kicked off, and what a lot of fabulous things are to be found at both. VR foundry, that makes the studio system that I use for everything I do, has released the Doorway sets of poses with the mesh doorway that you can edit for texture, and also edit the door to be as open or closed as needed. This is a great prop to have, not only with the poses that are included – there are two sets to purchase – but also the hundreds of poses that you may already own, that need that little something to bring them to life.

This is one of my favourites of the poses, as it can be shot from different directions and create such different looks. This time it looks as though I forgot something and am just reaching around to grab it off this table of wonderful things. Turn your camera and zoom in and you can look as if you are peeking around the corner or hiding…fun to be had. The sets include mirrors, so that makes life much easier, as you may want to use them on either side of the doorway.

I am wearing a skin release by ItGirls at Skin Fair, and it has such a severe model type face, that I really find it attractive for that kind of look. Not sure that I would be able to carry that look day to day, but I liked it enough to grab it for when I am feeling striking. It has hairbase options, brow options, freckle options and a few lipstick and shadow options…and the big win was that the physique body appliers for my slink items were included.

Showing off the beautiful body in a modest way, with the lingerie by Luxuria, this is a more revealing set of lingerie than I would show in full form myself, but you get enough of a sneak peak to see how beautiful it is, so you need to get yourself some, so that you can also show off your new skins. I love this bag by Baiastice, it has such a feminine quality to it, so this time around I decided to use it as a prop instead of as an attachment, and it works with all the planner and stuff on the table by other creators.

Lingerie, big hair, new skins and adorable and sexy footwear, it is a glorious day. The shoes are at the ongoing round of Collabor88, and they have a vintage air, but made with high feet in mind, making them sexy and sweet all at the same time, as Ingenue pulls off greatly and often. The big hair is by Analog Dog and is at this round of Hairology, another event going strong, so you have lots of places to go if your other choices are full for the time being.

Skin Fair – League

Aria Visage - Skin Fair - League

It is that time of the year again, when all of your skin and cosmetic needs are met. Skin Fair will start on the 11th of March and it is a huge roster of incredible creators from all parts of SL. There will be a wonderful range of skins, appliers, make ups and everything you can imagine for under your clothing.

I am excited to get a sneak peak and share with you the stunning Aria skin by League that is now a release in Appliers form for the Slink Visage head. I am wearing Emma the original mesh head by Slink, and with this Aria skin on her she is amazing looking.

The skin applier comes with eyeshadow options, brow colour options, no brow options, freckles options, lipsticks and a very cool hair-base. There are full demos available, so give her a spin, she is divine. I got to show off my glorious Luxuria bodysuit, I love this, it is so cool and so easy to wear with pants, and skirts, or just like I am now running around the grid in only it. I love how this necklace by Minimal brings attention to the cleavage of the bodysuit, it is all tres sexy.

I also picked up this great walk in closet set that is currently at The House & Garden Expo, and donating to Relay for Life, so make sure you run over and get that,  it is a fantastic price and so versatile.

Gothly Geisha

Geisha Gothly

I was in Bloggers Support Group last week, and one of the very lovely bloggers that is always so helpful and kind to everyone in there, said that she would be so excited if she had a store and I blogged her. She doesn’t have a store, that being the point, but it kind of made my year so far to have someone think that highly of me.

Her name is Hellishly Gothly, her blog is Just My Life, and she likes Dragons, and she loves Fantasy and RP stuff, you always see her wishing and hoping to get into some event that is about to start so that she can make sure and let her readers know it is coming, she has such enthusiasm for all things and is just really a pleasure to interact with in the group. I was thinking about this post every since she said those things, and decided today would be the day I would do a post on my thoughts on her. I was perusing her flickr and came across this picture. So decided that in my ode to Hellishly Gothly I would be a Goth Geisha, or something around about like that.

With a little help from the Ginny Fantasy skin by YS&YS and these amazing lipsticks by Avanti, I had the face all sorted. My go to hair for this kind of look is always a very old style by LeLutka called Kylie that I love. You cannot get it anymore, but it just resonates with me always when doing this type of styling. I also added a very very old set of geisha hairsticks from 2007 that something I used to wear often. For those that are old, my first Management job was on a Japanese inspired sim, so you would see me in kimonos day in and day out.

The kimono is at this round of C88 and is a breast revealing style, not my cup of cocoa, but with a bustier I was all sorted. I went over to Tempura Island, a sim that is the handiwork of the lovely team of Mandala, and is always so busy with very happy people enjoying the beautiful surroundings.

I used the wearable library from my VR Studio, loaded up with poses by Oracul, just wear it , activate it and let the VR Studio hud do its work, so much easier when shooting on location at someone else’s sim.

I hope that you like my homage to Hellishly and I hope that it does in fact cause her to do cartwheels, because that would make me very happy.

Ride your Pony (girl)

Ride your Pony

So we jumped on over to the Galley that is the joining sim to The Arcade. Whimsy and I both got in within minutes of eachother, spent many K’s and ran off home. I got lots of rares and the highlight was this amazing outfit from Enfant Terrible. You get the pants and top with a hud for all colours as the rare, and I was smitten instantly, especially as they have perfect Slink fitting sizes in Original and Hourglass and the Lara body too.

Kind of want to stay in it for a week, then I also got the boots and the choker and it was instant love with the thigh high pony boots, then noticing the horseshoe on the choker and realised it really is a Pony Girl outfit and so so adorable.

I took my pics by the ruins set by 8f8 that is a fantastic prop for pics, even loaded with its own sit poses. Lamb created this lovely style of hair, and with hair whatever colour packs I get usually just makes me pleased either way, but this pastel pack was fated to work with my outfit for sure. Finishing it up with the adorable pixie ears from Mandala that you can customise so well,  and I am just too adorable.
